A woman in her 60s with terminal cancer, a man in his 40s recently out of jail, and a British artist in his 50s come together by chance and take a road trip to Marfa, TX. Each are looking for something to give them hope, when hope is in short supply. They share profound experiences, across the Texas landscape from big cities to barren desert towns. What started as a convenient ride becomes much more, an opportunity to heal the deepest wounds, that only love with no strings attached can do. Written by marfared

Independent film-making of the rawest kind
20 April 2016 | by MOscarbradleySee all my reviews

"The Passage" is a road-movie quite unlike any other. A woman dying of cancer, a man just released from prison and a British artist take a road trip together through Texas, each finding some kind of spiritual 'awakening' on the journey. It may sound precious and 'arty' but it isn't. The actors aren't 'actors' but real people playing themselves and their experiences feel real than than contrived. The director, Roberto Minervini, isn't well known; in fact I have to confess I never heard of him before seeing this movie. An Italian, you could say he brings an outsider's chilly eye to bear on proceedings and he photographs landscape, not from the perspective of a tourist, but a realist. This is independent film-making of the rawest kind and it won't be to everyone's taste but if you are prepared to stick with it, it has much to offer and is often deeply moving.
